Preaching Post Roundup (September 2, 2021)

Here are some posts on preaching and exegesis that I noticed recently. (To receive Preaching Post Roundup as a weekly email, please subscribe.)

  • Preaching and the Lord’s Supper (Vos) from Geerhardus Vos and Shane Lems (The Reformed Reader) – the focus of our preaching should be Christ, just as it is when we celebrate the Lord’s Supper
  • Episode 41: Pastors and Preaching to People in Pain (with Matthew Kim) from Matthew Kim and Ronjour Locke (The Center for Preaching and Pastoral Leadership) – the importance of being aware of hearers who are in pain; benefits of addressing pain in our preaching
  • The Importance of Being Yourself When You Preach from Bruce Ballast (Preaching Acts) – don’t be a clone: learn from excellent communicators, but develop your own voice
  • Al Pitman – Stay on Message from Al Pitman and Nick Cady (Expositor’s Collective) – it is not about us, but about Jesus; we need to be ourselves in the pulpit; we need to stay on message and take time for prayer
  • Episode 133: Mistakes New Preachers Make from Jared C. Wilson and Ronni Kurtz (For the Church) – new preachers may not see weightiness of preaching, may try to do too much in a sermon, may not have good transitions, may mimic others, may not have reasonable expectations, may not pray for heat and light, and may fail to proclaim the gospel
  • [For those who don’t have access to Bible commentaries and other Bible study tools, remember that you can borrow commentaries and tools online. Many of these resources are “critical”, but some are evangelical. Here are some lists: Bible Commentaries to Borrow; Bible Study Tools to Borrow]
